    Rivers has missed 9,3,1,16 games in his first 4 seasons, and if you take his career numbers and average them down to a single year they look woefully uninspiring.

    he had injury issues 2/4 of his first 4 nfl seasons but he still has a ton of talent... personally id throw a 5th rounder for a chance at him compared to somebody we draft with that pick who has a good chance of not even making the roster

    If the Giants weren't so devastated at ILB going into the season, they probably wouldn't be taking a risk on this guy. Further, we currently have a very talented ILB in Butler, as well as a player that the FO believes is a starting quality ILB in Mouton (and, if he's able to understand the scheme and play well in it, then I like his skillset, too).

    Rivers has played 35 of a possible 64 games, and has never been a game changer in an NFL defense. This is not the DeMeco Ryans trade.

    Also, I think 1/3 of our Olinemen are from the 5th round or later, so I wouldn't be chucking our draft picks in the trash before you see what they can do...

    Fire Norv and AJ. Replace with French Stewart and "The Big Giant Head". No one will notice a difference.
